Why Manchester City won’t have a Champions League badge on their kit next season

Manchester City will not be showing off their achievement on their kits for the 2023/24 campaign.

Manchester City made history on Saturday evening when they saw off Inter Milan in the Champions League final.

The Sky Blues beat Inter 1-0 to lift their first-ever Champions League trophy. They also became only the second English side to complete the treble after Manchester United in 1999.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, is the first manager to complete a treble with two separate clubs.

However, Manchester City will not have the Champions League badge on their kits for the upcoming campaign.

The reason for this is UEFA’s Badge of Honour is not awarded to teams that have only won the Champions League once. In fact, there are only a select few clubs in European football who can currently wear it.

Introduced at the beginning of the 2000/01 season, clubs must win a European title either five times or three times in succession to qualify for the badge.

Sevilla can also wear UEFA’s Badge of Honour thanks to their remarkable Europa League exploits. The Spanish outfit have won Europe’s second-tier competition on seven occasions (2006, 2007, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2020 and 2023).
